Happy Messy Saturday everyone!
I can’t believe it’s Halloween next Saturday! Is everyone’s costume ready? Whew. I have to make two before next Saturday and I don’t have any idea what costumes to make. Hahaha. 😁
I already made a Wizard-slash-Witch’s hat for today’s activity, if I’ll be too lazy, Niko’s going to wear the same thing on Halloween.
Well, that’s the problem for future me. For now, let’s brew some potions.
WIZARD POTION SENSORY PLAY
THINGS WE USED:
Medium stainless bowl
Small medicine cups
2 tall plastic cylinders
2 toy lizards
5 green beads
Blue and yellow food coloring
3 cotton buds
Printed Wizard Potion ingredients
Print a wizard potion ingredients. You can make one in Photoshop.
Dilute the vinegar with blue coloring (or the dragon’s tears) and pour it inside the cylinder.
Mix the yellow coloring with the baking soda or (the powdered unicorn’s horn) and pour it in the other cylinder. You can also put labels outside the cylinders for more details.
Put the cotton buds (aka werewolves bones) and green beads (aka witch’s warts) in the medicine cups.
Place everything on a tray and serve to play.
Now, your pointy hat and magic wand… and let’s start brewing!
The vinegar and baking soda mixture made a fizzy-bubbly effect plus the blue and yellow colors turned green making the brewing experience more magical.
He played with this for an hour, putting things in and out every now and then. The funny thing during this activity was that he never removed his hat.1
